Sabic Innovative Plastics has introduced two new grades of its Lexan-brand polycarbonate sheet.
Lexan ULG1003 112OQ offers superior optical quality for a range of automotive and transportation applications, according to the company. In such uses, it provides clarity with light weight, and minimal ripple, distortion and optical defects.
The new resin is featured on the roof panels, canopies and rear triangular windows of the new Spyker C8 Laviolette car.
Sabic also has developed nine-wall Lexan Thermoclear sheet to cut down on energy costs in residences and commercial buildings.
Compared with multipane glass, Lexan Thermoclear provides superior insulation, light weight, and high impact resistance, stiffness and ultraviolet-light protection, according to the Pittsfield, Mass., company.
